Cisco announces Collaboration in Motion to bring together the power of collaboration with the ubiquity and performance of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network. Collaboration in Motion integrates products and services from the Cisco WebEx, Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco Unified Wireless Network and Cisco Advanced Services product lines to bring the collaborative experience to the mobile workspace.
As part of Collaboration in Motion, Cisco has focused on new products and services in five critical investment areas: the workspace experience, the wireless network platform, third-party applications, technology partners and professional services. The goal of this strategic approach is to bridge the gaps between an on-premises wired network, off-premises cellular network and a high performance Wi-Fi network, thereby enabling collaboration from any workspace.
Cisco is expanding its strategy to deliver network services to an ever-expanding number of devices while simplifying the way these devices connect to the wireless network.
